History - Christmas Quiz - Ideal for you last lesson before Christmas

History - Christmas Quiz - Ideal for you last lesson before Christmas

This is a quiz that I have created to use with my classes in the last week before Christmas. It contains four rounds of 6 questions which are general knowledge either about history or Christmas itself. The quiz is broken into two parts with a peer assessment for Part 1 and Part 2 to break up the lesson. I have recommended capping groups at 4 but you are obviously free to change this and increase/decrease it. There are some tricky questions included (e.g. a picture of a young Churchill for name the historical figure) but I have tried to make it accessible to keep students on-board. Merry Christmas.
